Headliner Series Wood String Cajon for Adjustable Snare Effect, Large Size
by Meinl Percussion
MEINL Headliner Series Cajons deliver the classic cajon sound at an affordable price and can be played with Flamenco or World Music. They are also very useful during unplugged gigs for delivering the rhythmic foundation for a whole band when a full drum set cannot be used. These all Rubber Wood cajons feature an internal system of strings that span from the top to the bottom of the playing surface to deliver a sensitive rattle that acts as a snare effect. The strings are fully adjustable for different tastes. Simply tighten or loosen the two screws at the bottom of the cajon with the allen wrench provided to find your characteristic voice. A deep and boomy Rubber Wood front plate provides the basis for rich sound development. This durable playing surface delivers a full bass spectrum, cutting snare slaps, and responds beautifully to soft finger rolls. The top corners of the front plate are adjustable by tightening or loosening the screws - another feature from Meinl that allows you to completely customize your stylistic palate. This will alter the distance between the frontplate corner and cajon body, resulting in a varied amount of "slap" sound. The natural finish Rubber Wood resonating body has solid construction and excellent tonal qualities that broaden your bass notes and focus your rolls and corner hits to take your beats to the next level, leaving you feeling inspired to play more. Meinl Headliner Series Cajons are ideal for any skill level and musician. From praise and worship services and theatrical productions to rock ‘n roll shows and small coffee house sets, their versatility is unmatched. If you are a guitar player and wish to add a little pulse to your music, gently striking the frontplate with the back of your heel generates a superb low end punch. Their wide range of sounds, ease of use and musicality make these cajons more than capable to integrate into your main act, live or in the studio.
